Bubba Brayna, 97 and blind as mole, mistakes a hungry, latke-hunting bear for the village rabbi. Hilarity ensues. Misinterpreting his grunts and growls as prayers and blessings, she serves him a batch of her famous potato pancakes spread with jam, wipes his hairy face afterwards and sends him back out into the cold with a cozy scarf to keep him warm. She only finds out later the truth about her dinner guest! Includes a recipe that young readers can try. Lovely illustrations add to the fun.
